Here is a list of general actions or states that are expressed (often more specifically) by Teko ideophones and that do not seem to fit in your current list.

You can read about Teko ideophones in my grammar. P. 400-409

Objet : [Lingtyp] A "Swadesh List" of Ideophone semantic categories
I am currently trying to make a list of semantic categories of ideophones, in order to do a cross-linguistic comparison (for example, do ideophones whose meanings are related to brightness show similarity across different languages?)
Here's my list so far, created out of my intuition and previous literature.
I wonder if you have any meanings that you would like to add to or remove from the list.
The goal is to make a list of ideophone meanings so that most languages that have a sizeable ideophone inventory would have at least several ideophones that belong to each category.
I would appreciate any comments or advices.
